THANK YOU FELLOW SEW ALONGERS AND BLOGGERS! I have only gone and finished the birth sampler for my grandson. I started it in 2009 intending to have it ready for his first birthday. But my husband had major health problems and it didn’t happen, even after Mr E got better. Each January since then I got the sampler out, added some more stitches and put it away again. But in May, 2015, I was inspired to join in the SAL. Best decision I could have made with this project. So a big thank you for your encouragement and support.
I completed the hedge at the bottom, and added his name and DOB to the middle, which I can’t share , sorry, sign of the times, and stitched the remaining grasses to all the little creatures.
So it’s now gone to the picture framers, and I will show it in its final glory, maybe not next time but certainly in six weeks time.
What next? Sorting out some magazines I came across one of those half finished free gifts, magazine dated 2000.
and finished two napkin rings
Then I found this which was a Christmas gift to me a few years ago and not yet started, so this is what I am doing now whilst I figure out which big project to tackle next, and, believe me I have a very good selection of non started cross projects given to me over the years to choose from!
Please have a look at the others taking part in the SAL.

The Sampler is based on the books Percy the Park Keeper by Nick Butterworth, designed by Adele Welsby.
